DOCUMENT INFO
Description: [...] this study is one that, while drawing on the traditions of prior feminist criticism, as Ramanathan acknowledges in her references to Laura Mulvey, Judith Mayne, and Teresa de Lauretis, attempts to illustrate that the notion of the female form and authority onscreen is in fact more complex and contradictory than previously established. Ramanathan analyzes the concept of genre in the third chapter, arguing that it is a masculine concept as well as one of racist imperialism. [...] the use of genres to categorize or label films legitimates the authority of male critics and directors and the male-centered films such as Westerns, combat films, and action movies, which are the primary types of films produced in the studio era and today.
